Summary

This science program, offered to all undergraduate students at the University of Iowa as an alternative to the traditional science core courses, is a three-course sequence designed primarily for elementary and special education majors. The program utilizes a student-structured laboratory setting with its main goal the development of a science awareness within the individual student. There are no formal lectures or required textbooks. The courses focus entirely on the student activities which the students, themselves, identify. Goals of the program are identified, the instructor's role is described, as are the grading procedures. An evaluation of the program has been undertaken and results presented here. References, films, suggested activities, and sample transcripts of student seminars are found in the appendices of the publication. (EB)
